The hugely successful East Suffolk Partnership (ESP) Forum returns for the fourth year in November at the Trinity Park Conference Centre, Bucklesham on Friday 11 November 2016.
This year’s event will seek to provide a ‘time out’ from our continually changing world to look towards the future of east Suffolk and how we can take advantage of the emerging opportunities and challenges.
The aim of the conference is to help build better partnership working in east Suffolk, allowing the delegates the opportunity to meet members of the East Suffolk Partnership Board and hear about progress in developing a collaborative approach to working across East Suffolk. Once again, the events will be supported by the East of England LGA.
The East Suffolk Partnership (ESP) recognises that with support, local people are often best placed to find innovative solutions to local problems and this year’s Forum will seek to challenge our perceptions and promote creative approaches to tackle local priorities together through a dynamic partnership between citizens, the wider public sector, the voluntary and business sectors, and local government across East Suffolk.
We have a packed programme of speakers, workshops and seminars and there will also be plenty of opportunity to visit the Market Place.
The key note speakers for this year’s forum are Stephen Baker, Chief Executive of Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils, Stephen Javes, Chief Executive of Orwell Housing and Chairman of Community Action Suffolk, and Roger Wright, Chief Executive of Aldeburgh Music who will be laying out their vision for the future of East Suffolk.
Colin Law, Chairman of the East Suffolk Partnership, said:
“The future is a constantly changing picture and here in east Suffolk we are looking to deliver a lot of changes affecting local government, communities, businesses and the people that live and work here.
The Forum is the perfect platform to bring key people, partners and organisations together to think about how we can prosper in these changing times. This year we will be taking a closer focus on young people representing the next generation. They will be playing their part in our Forum, to help us shape our discussions about what their future holds in east Suffolk.”
The East Suffolk Partnership Forum takes place at Trinity Park on Friday 11 November 2016 from 9am-2pm.
This important event will give delegates the opportunity to meet members of the East Suffolk Partnership Board and participate in a collaborative approach to working across East Suffolk.
People must be registered to attend.
